Get In!

See the thing is I have a total aversion to drinking Diet Coke from the plastic bottle. From a can, fine. From a glass bottle, fine. But I typically avoid drinking it from the plastique kind. Am I alone? Could I be just one of thousands of consumers who feel the same and who Diet Coke therefore needed to dupe into buying it? Well it worked! The Nails Inc collaboration had me hook, line and sinker. For those of you not in the UK, Nails Inc (nice nail polish brand that typically retails at about $10 a bottle) were giving away one of four nail polishes with every 2 bottles of Diet Coke. The four colours included. London, what Nails Inc describe as a "trendy nude". Paris, a deep purple. Milan, bright, classic red. New York, bright pink. Today I finally remembered to pop into Boots and I picked up the last "London". Get in my son! It's a lovely colour and one I am itching to wear. I somehow managed to make myself drink some of the coke in the bottle on the left so it can't be all that bad? The Nails Inc press release encourages you to collect them all. I don't think I will be doing that but I can relate to the temptation. Who then will 'fess up to bulk buying Diet Coke like a crazy person?

Products I Use every Day

1. St Ives Apricot Blemish Fighting Facial Scrub? - I bought this purely because it was on offer in Boots so I thought why not. Especially as during the cold season I get dry skin so I thought I need a new exfoliator. The exfoliator smells gorgeous and comes in a big sized tube. It gently exfoliates removing oil, dirt and dull skin cells that can lead to blackheads and blemishes. It says for Oily/Blemish prone skin but I have dry skin and I find that it works fine on my skin its not hard at all. I believe I paid $5.99 for this 150ml exfoliator from Boots/

2. Clinique Liquid Facial Soap in Extra Mild - I got given this for Christmas by my boyfriend and I really love it. I use it in the shower. Its lightweight and not greasy. You just dampen your face and apply in a circular motion onto the face and neck then rinse. It comes with a pump so you can waste it just two pumps and you're good to go. You can purchase this for around $17.

3. Organic Surge Face Mask - I used to use the 99c face masks that you can pick up from Superdrug but I never found one that I liked the feel of. I hate a heavy mask and I hate ones that you have to peel off. This Organic Surge Face Mask deep cleanses and nourishes to give dull or dehydrated skin an instant boost. Its lightweight and I cant tell that its on my face. Its not greasy at all and a little goes a very long way. I apply it and leave it for 5-10 minutes then rinse off. My mum and I both tried it when I first got it and she was shocked to see that her skin had a lovely glow after use. You can buy it from the Organic Surge website for $7.99.

So there you go all of my skincare products. If you've got any questions about any of the products that I've mentioned just leave a comment below and I'll get back to you. I'm not saying that all of these products will work for you but as they are all pretty affordable I suggest that you do try them. I am a big believer in taking care of your skin and obviously it helps if you eat fruit and veg and drink plenty of water. That is probably the best product for your skin, a  healthy diet.

How to Lose Weight

So many “quick fix” lose weight programs leave us feeling frustrated and depressed, largely due to the fact that they leave us undernourished and fail to achieve the desired outcome. The ability to lose weight successfully depends on a number of factors, and generally speaking quick fix programs fail to take note of these requirements. The fact is many people in the world over are being told by their doctors to lose weight. Do you know what those health problems are? So what can we do to help our people to lose gained weight and live a healthier lifestyle? Lose weight fads are everywhere as millions of people search on Google for ways to look great. Not all fads are helpful, some are down right dangerous, and most are just ineffective and can even lead to weight gain. 

A recent study followed thousands of participants starting a healthy lifestyle plan. This study, spearheaded by Kaiser Permanente, a health guru, found that the group who kept track of everything that they ate lost twice as much weight as those who did not. Very often weight loss programs fail because the dieter is either disorganized or reluctant to be completely honest about what they have eaten. Writing down your daily intake of food helps to eliminate these two factors. One aspect of weight loss that is often forgotten about is the effect of our attitudes and our thought processes. A negative attitude can be self defeating. 

One way to overcome this problem is through the use of hypnosis, this can often be the missing link that helps you to lose weight more effectively. There are various factors that affect the rate at which we lose weight. Age affects our metabolism, slowing down about 5% every 10 years after age 40. Males typically burn more fat than females due to the fact that they possess a greater muscle mass (more muscle generally means a higher rate of metabolism). Hormone changes at the different stages of our lives can also affect our metabolisms and ultimately our ability to lose weight or gain weight. Although the end result is largely dependant on the food we eat, it is also important to remember that the actions of the mind can play a vital role in the over all success of the diet. 

Fresh Baked Bread

There is something really relaxing about fresh bread baking in the oven. My boys and husband literally salivate when there are loaves cooking. They hang around the kitchen and wait for the loaves to come hot out of the oven so they can fight over huge pieces with butter. I am partial to white bread and my boys love cinnamon. Every now and again I venture out of my comfort zone with artisan breads with olives, pestos and sundried tomatoes as main ingredients but they never seem to go over as well as the standars white loaf. We dip the bread in soups, chilies and stews. And for special weekend treats I make a batch of cinnamon apple butter to top the bread. I have (and will be) making many loaves of this bread in the future.

Fresh Baked White Bread ingredients: 2 packages active dry yeast, 2 cups warm water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp salt, 2 eggs, beaten, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 6- 6 1/2 cups flour.

In a large bowl dissolve the yeast into the warm water. Add sugar, salt, eggs, oil and 3 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured wirk surface and knead until elastic and smooth, about 6-8 minutes. Place into greased bowl, making dure that you turn the dough to cover the top. Cover and let rise for one hour (should double in size) and punch down the dough. Divide the dough into two loaves and place in 2 bread pans. Cover and let it rise again for one hour. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes. This recipe makes two loaves. Find more recipes on
